Medical Subspecialties

Applied Medical Systems

We know that optometry is not all retail and refractions. Your scope of practice is likely more in line with your medical training and expertise. This means that the services you bill for probably include procedures that fall under one or more medical subspecialties. Additional subspecialties mean more training and potential headaches for your front desk and billing staff.

When you outsource your vision billing to Applied Medical Systems, you don’t have to provide additional training to staff. We know the in-and-outs of billing for medical subspecialties for optometry practices. Our expert billing specialists are up-to-date with the most current guidelines. Our extensive experience allows us to submit clean claims more than 95% of the time so you get reimbursed without having to spend valuable time resolving denials.

At Applied Medical Systems, we have pretty much seen it all and are ready to assist with any of the subspecialties listed below. If you have run into an issue getting your claims paid we probably have too. For instance, vision therapy and laser surgeries may come back with the denial code PR172, “Payment is adjusted when performed/billed by a provider of this specialty.”  Lucky for you, we can turn our hard-earned knowledge into simple solutions and advice for you.
